Daily Thoughts 11/24/2012
I watched a bit of The Passions: Philosophy and the Intelligence of Emotions today. Each video segment is about half an hour long. There are 24 segments. The segments cover a single aspect about emotion: grief, fear, love, etc.
I also read some more of On Politics V.2. Right now, I am reading about the political background of the American revolution. The writings draw heavily on the Roman writers Cicero and Seneca. They also are influenced by John Locke and Algernon Sidney. I like that it mentions in the book that Jefferson sold his library to congress to found the Library of Congress.
I relaxed a bit and watched some cartoons. Today has been a pleasant day.
